Table 2 Comparison of IMS and RT-PCR results

From: Analysis of EpCAM positive cells isolated from sentinel lymph nodes of breast cancer patients identifies subpopulations of cells with distinct transcription profiles

IMS results RT-PCR + RT-PCR ÷ Total
MOC31 + 35 (49%) 36 (51%) 71
MOC31 ÷ - - -
BM7 + 27 (51%) 26 (49%) 53
BM7 ÷ 8 (44%) 10 (56%) 18
  1. The RT-PCR results (positive/negative) are shown as number (%) of the total samples that were positive or negative with each of the antibodies used in the immunomagnetic selection (IMS).
